Stewart McCann

Creator of quality hand made furniture


SM Timber Design is a custom woodwork shop based in Barongarook, near the Otway ranges of South West Victoria. Founder, Stewart McCann, has a passion for high quality timber, woodworking and design. This began as a youngster after shadowing his father (Gavin, Carpenter) to worksites whenever the opportunity arose. Continually gathering knowledge and improving his craft, skills and techniques. The passion grew and when circumstances allowed his vision of a sustainable business to develop, he seized the opportunity.


SM Timber’s business concept is based around high-quality timber furniture, custom designed and handcrafted for an exceptional finish and fit. Using sustainably sourced materials, such as recycled, reclaimed, and locally milled hardwood, gives the perfect opportunity to showcase the exquisite character and charisma of the natural timber. With a story and one-of-a-kind background, each custom furnishing is truly unique.

Design process-

From the first point of contact, everything revolves around the wishes of you, the client. Whether this process begins with a photograph or sketch, a verbal description, or even just the measurements of an empty space, a solution will be found. Communication and planning are vital and are ‘nailed’ before any project takes off. Throughout the build, the highest standards will be followed to ensure the finest quality finish. The tailored furniture will then be enjoyed and loved by all in its brand new home.
